The legendary Patti LaBelle makes an appearance on "The Jennifer Hudson Show," airing Wednesday, February 8.

Host Jennifer Hudson tries not to cry as she talks about how Patti LaBelle is like a second mom to her and how the legend paved the way for her career.

Patti, who is promoting her tour, recalls an embarrassing moment that went viral at the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony for President Bill Clinton, and she reacts to another viral moment from her appearance on "The Tyra Banks Show."

The icon then reflects on being 78 years old and on the lookout for love, stating that she's "too good to be solo."

Plus, Patti and Jennifer discuss who should play Patti in a movie and she reminisces on past moments with Diana Ross, the Rolling Stones, and Prince before the singers perform a duet of "You Are My Friend." Don't miss Patti and Jennifer sing to audience member Althea celebrating her 103rd birthday on the show!

This week continues with fellow EGOT winner John Legend helping Jennifer celebrate the 100th episode of her talk show! Later in the week, actress Alison Brie and author Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt stop by.
